Making History and Recording It

A Tribute to Unsung Heroes

The Riverside African American Historical Society held its 17th Annual Unsung Heroes Reception at California Baptist University on April 19th.

The event annually honors community members who contribute time and other resources to the benefit of others, often without acknowledgement.

This year’s honorees were: William Anderson, Mattie Louise Johnson, Cherie Russell, Calvin & Edna Cunningham, Monrow Mabon, Ola Faye Stephens, and Hazel Strickland. According to Rose Mayes, RAAHS president, “each of the honorees have contributed tremendously, given of themselves, made sacrifices, and have made the community a better place to live, work, and play.”
